Gmail is dead!  Long live Gmane!  :)

(Joking, I don't even use gmail)

Use a newsgroup - mailing list gateway like Gmane, and you don't have to
download any emails, only the subject lines, and pick the ones you want to
read.  With a decent newsgroup reader, you can sort/filter/etc based on the
subject lines as well.  If the mailing list is on gmane, I never subscribe
to it directly, and all of Ubuntu's mailing lists are there.

'gmane.linux.ubuntu':  if you don't already know that you don't like using
the newsgroup metaphor (some don't - its a different strokes thing), its
worth trying to save on download bandwidth.
